Domain Name Scam - Again! - 30th May 2012

Today Turboweb recieved a letter in the post about a domain name we manage. It's from a group calling themselves "Domain Renewal Group" based in Melbourne, Australia. Turboweb has never done business with the Domain Name Renewal Group.

They run a neat scam that is not necessarily illegal but very sneaky. They send in the letter a form for you to fill out to renew a domain you probably already have. They give you the option to pay by credit card and it all looks very official.

The scam is the price of renewal is inflated and if you fill out the form you are transferring the domain name to the Domain Name Renewal group.

If you get this kind of letter from someone you do not know, throw it in the bin, if you are unsure about it feel free to give us a call on 0800 TURBOWEB or drop us an email info@turboweb.co.nz and we will get you pointed in the right direction.
